    Fires that destroyed about 14 homes in a New Jersey shore town that was hit hard by Sandy have rekindled, fueled by natural gas.     

    NBC 4 New York chopper footage shows flames raging through Bricktown. There's a large cluster of flames and smaller fires spread out from it.     

    Emergency crews are trying to make their way to the barrier island, but the Mantoloking Bridge remains impassable and they have to make a detour through Toms River.

    An official with the Ocean County Emergency Management Office says authorities believe natural gas lines are fueling the flames. The official says the homes burned down two days ago when Sandy pounded the affluent town.

    The town was under a mandatory evacuation order ahead of the storm.
